Boating Accident Attorneys for Volusia County
More boating accidents occur in Florida than in any other state, causing serious injuries and deaths. If you or a loved one has been injured in a yachting, boating or personal watercraft accident, a Simoes Davila attorney can help determine if you are eligible for compensation for your injuries according to Florida law and then fight for your rights under the law.
Types of Boating Accidents
In Florida, we do not require boating or safety instruction before you are allowed to operate a boat. As a result, many people take boats out on the water without understanding how to operate the vessels, what to do in case of emergency, and how to keep passengers as safe as possible.
Numerous boating accidents occur each year mainly because people don’t know or follow boating rules and safety laws and generally underestimate how dangerous boating can be. Some accidents occur due to pure negligence, as in incidents involving high speeds, overloading of a boat, or lack of safety equipment on board. Other accidents occur due to boating while under the influence of drugs or alcohol or reckless operation of a boat.
Often the other boat driver is at fault due to a lack of care while operating a vessel. However, this isn’t always the case. Sometimes boat accidents occur through no fault of the driver. Different circumstances, such as a manufacturing issue, an adverse reaction to prescription medication or an allergy, weather, or other uncontrollable elements can lead to accidents
